We're giving thanks today for two special reasons:
*First, Amy and Elise are back from their trip up to Subic, a city just a few hours north-east of Manila, where they traveled with their soccer team for a tournament last weekend. They came home with a beautiful crystal soccer ball trophy, having won 2nd place in the eight-school tournament after an intense Championship game, playing into overtime and winding up with a shootout. Welcome home, and way to play!! You can see more photos of their trip here at Elise's blog!

*Second, we officially, as of this weekend, have renters for our house here in Davao during our months of home assignment!! Hurray!! This means that we'll be able to just box up a few of our personal items to store in a back room, leaving the rest for the use of those who need a furnished house while we are away. Now we'll have a home to return to at the end of our trip Stateside, reducing the hassle factors immensely, both going and coming. This is a giant answer to prayer, and we are feeling relieved and delighted!!
What are you giving thanks for today?
